You just realized that your phone has little juice and panic starts. How much cargo can you get in a limited period of time? We tested 10 of the leading flagship phones and discovered that the OnePlus 5T is the fastest in the world.
iPhones tested with an optional 29-watt adapter and USB-C to Lightning cable. The good news is that most of the premium Currently, Android phones offer some type of fast charging through their USB C adapters. In the case of the latest iPhones, you can load them quickly, but only if you pay extra for both a 29-watt power adapter and a USB-Ca-Beam Cable (approximately $ 68 total). Yes really.
For our first round of tests, we wanted to know what percentage of battery these phones could reach in 30 minutes of charging with their included adapters. The phones were on, but the screens were off. With iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and i Phone X, we use the standard AC plug and the fast charging equipment to provide you both sets of results.
The OnePlus 5T led the pack, reaching an impressive 59 percent in 30 minutes. The advantage for OnePlus? Unlike most other Android phones, it does not use Qualcomm's QuickCharge technology. Instead, it uses the Dash Charge, which offers higher amperage than QuickCharge and uses dedicated circuits in the charger itself for heat management. (Android Central explains how Dash Charge works).
The next best phone in the first round of our tests was the LG V30 at 53 percent. The iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were very close, at 50 percent, 49 percent and 47 percent, respectively, when we used the fast-charging equipment that Apple sells separately.

Among other phones, the Galaxy Note 8 S8 and S8 + were all in the same stage, at 35 to 38 percent, and Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL had comparable results.
